COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Impact

Dear SEKISUI KYDEX partner, 

In the US and some European countries, COVID-19 cases are trending up again, and so, at SEKISU KYDEX, we are continuing our diligent focus on maintaining the safety and health of our employees while continuing to meet the needs of our customers. We continue to update protocols to stay in compliance with CDC and state guidelines, and are actively monitoring the COVID-19 news as it relates to our employees, our customers, and our suppliers. To date we have been able to continue all our operations.    

Please reference this weekly situation report, or as we used to say in the Navy, our weekly SITREP, for the current status of our supply chain, production, lead times, etc. 

September 21, 2020    Overall Status:  GREEN

Summary: All plants are fully operational, and we expect to continue to operate indefinitely. 

Employees:  We continue to quarantine employees who have had potential exposure or have traveled to high case areas.  There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among employees.  All on-site personnel are wearing masks and following other best-practice protocols. Shifts are appropriately staffed. WFH employees will continue to operate remotely for the foreseeable future.  

Customers: We are maintaining normal lead times. We are expediting all orders for COVID-19 related medical applications. Please contact our Customer Collaboration Team with order information.   

Suppliers: We are experiencing no material supply issues.  

Shipping: Shipping is operating normally at this time. Our dedicated trucks for the Holland, MI facility are fully operational. International shipping (ocean/air) is still tight, but we have experienced very few delivery issues, and Customer Collaboration will contact you in the event of any impact to your delivery.     

Management: The Senior Management Team continues to meet daily (remotely) to monitor the situation and to update our plans as needed.        

Please reach out to your SEKISUI KYDEX contact if you have any questions.   

Thank you,  

Justin Noll | Vice President, R&D and Supply Chain
